It took me a moment.
But then I couldn’t stop laughing.
To add a few more details, #RBWL first started when a blogger (Shae from Shae Has Left The Room) was reading the Manuscript Wishlist manned by agents and editors around the world and decided that she wanted a wishlist just for readers and bloggers. In May 2013, she started spontaneously tweeting things she wanted to see on her shelf in the future, and soon other hungry readers took up the call. Sadly, most of these wishes are lost to Twitter, though a few were captured in this archive.
Reader/Blogger Wishlist returned in full force in October of the same year. Run by Shae, Molli of Books and Whimsy, Gillian of Writer of Wrongs, and Jess of Read My Breath Away, the #RBWL tweeting session lasted over 24 hours and spawned nearly 2,000 wishes!
Those tweets are saved in this archive and categorized via tags by type of wish to be easily searchable. The archive is manned by Shae and Jess, but anyone may submit questions or wishes via the Ask Me Anything tab, as well as tweeting the next time #RBWL hits Twitter.
"My grandfather killed a man that way once, using the edge of a wooden sword."
"I hadn’t realized the Thieves of Eddis were so warlike."
"They aren’t, mostly. But like all men, Teleus, I have two grandfathers. One of mine was Eddis.""
